You may need to pass --skip-checks after removing the module.  By
default Guix tries to prevent you from accidentally installing an
unusable system.

The reason for the problem here is that the current kernel needs
“shpchp”, but the target kernel doesn’t.  We cannot know what the target
kernel needs before it is built.

This problem is currently being discussed here:

In short: there’s nothing wrong with what you’re doing and Guix is a
little over-protective in this rare instance where a kernel module
ceases to exist with an upgrade of Linux.
